Thanks for your suggestion.
To improve code consistency , will rework the patches.

For the family number, As a JV company, to keep the consistency usage of
CPU family convention, Hygon will negotiate with AMD to make sure the CPU
family numbers both company used will not overlap. So as Hygon will use
the family 18h for Dhyana, AMD will skip the family 18h and directly use
family 19h for its new product.

Based on this assumption, this patch set direct check the family number
for 18h to see if it is Hygon processor to create a minimal patch set.

For the consistency, will modify the codes as follows:
- if (boot_cpu_data.x86 == 0x17) {
+ if (boot_cpu_data.x86 == 0x17 ||
+ (boot_cpu_data.x86_vendor == X86_VENDOR_HYGON &&
+ boot_cpu_data.x86 == 0x18)) {

Your suggestion is correct, will try to make the code more consistent and
update the next patch set to use (AMD && family >= 0x0f) || HYGON.

Thanks for the suggestion, will change this by directly reusing condition
check if reused codes are direct:
+ case X86_VENDOR_HYGON:
case X86_VENDOR_AMD:
if (msr >= MSR_F15H_PERF_CTR)
return (msr - MSR_F15H_PERF_CTR) >> 1;
return msr - MSR_K7_PERFCTR0;

Also will branch codes for Hygon in case of complicated checking condition
such as in xen_pmu_arch_init().
